Break Timer
A break timer application for GNOME.
GNOME Break Timer keeps track of your computer use and provides a gentle
reminder to take regular breaks. This is great for anyone concerned about the
mental or physical issues associated with heavy computer use. GNOME Break
Timer aims to be effective over a long time, so it is assertive as possible
without being irritating. It avoids threatening people with negative things
like permanent usage statistics, but it provides incentives to be healthy
which fit the moment at hand.
This helps you to schedule regular breaks. It will remind you to take them
based on how much you are using the computer. It tries hard to be simple but
helpful, using notifications to gently indicate when a break has arrived while
keeping out of the way for activities like games and videos.
